No Solo thread? Anyone seen it? Doesn't look worth the cinema visit but I could be wrong.

>"Solo: A Star Wars Story" is the ninth-most-expensive film ever made.
>Solo: A Star Wars Story hits all its marks except the one it needed to hit most: accounting for one of pop culture’s most cantankerous charismatics.
>"Solo: A Star Wars Story," directed by Ron Howard, is a curiously low-stakes blockbuster, in effect a filmed Wikipedia page.
>Alden Ehrenreich?s Han Solo bears only a glancing resemblance to the gruff, irreverent flyboy Harrison Ford portrayed so winningly.
>including a 196-year-old Wookie named Chewbacca.

The fuck, chewie is 196 years old?

>Cast >Woody Harrelson (Beckett)

The fuck even is this movie lol?

Also I think Solo is getting a lot of undeserved hate and the real reason people don't want to see it isn't that it looks bad but they're burned out on Star Wars.

But it's miles further off from standard Star Wars fare than the mainline movies or frigging Rogue One. So give it a shot.

Or just forget about it and watch it on streaming later. The great thing about low expectations is no disappointment when it turns out to be decent lol.

Yeah except its budget was more than they are making off it.

Fans know Disney wants to milk the CashCow for all its worth

So fans refuse to support it

I mean, supporting Lucas when it was his own creation owned by himself? Sure

But Disney? No, no no no. Fans have seen their direction with eps 7 & 8, and RogueOne fucking sucked shit as did Ep 8.

Im not surprised this movie is tanking, I dont plan on watching it, and am already not psyched for or planning on seeing Ep 9 in theaters.

Fuck, spoil it for me for all I care, fuck what the franchise has become.

This is the elephant in the room IMO, why the fuck would you make a spinoff movie about a beloved character and then just make them...a different character? From what I've seen in the trailers I might even like whoever this guy is if they gave him his own story and made him his own character, but he's not Han Solo

>undeserved hate
I've seen lots of articles covering how it bombed at the box office saying "I loved the film, but oh well, shit happens". It sounds like the movie is no worse than any random Marvel instalment, only Marvel films still have the special Schezaun sauce or whatever keeps people entertained. I guess the problem is that Star Wars is obsessed with its past while Marvel films are always moving towards the future.

I dunno I am just sick of him. Sure he's been in some amazing movies, some of my favorites like Pulp Fiction and he killed on Cheers and True Detective. I just don't like him though. When I saw he was in the last Planet of the Apes I was like 'fuck why?' and then when I saw he was in Star Wars I was like he doesn't belong there. It takes me out of the movie.

If only Disney didn't get rid of all that EU stuff. That's where all the good shit was.

Don't want to bring this point up, but feel like I should. Jon Kasdan and all these other fools shoving their SJW political agendas into all the new stuff doesn't help. I'm reminded of a letter that a kid sent to Stephen Spielberg after he made Jurassic Park. The letter essentially stated, "get to the dinosaurs quicker in the next movie" and that's exactly what he did. Every movie since The Lost World on has been random bullshit and dinosaurs all day. While that's fun for kids and stoned people, a good movie it does not make.

That being said, there's a way to include these things in films without it being poorly ham-handed attempts at Inclusion(tm).

it's a critique of violence and grotesque acts being glorified in cinema and TV. How journalists and media feeds off of it and how they are oblivious to the consequences. Also some jabs at liberals who think criminals / killers are on their side for some reason.
It's a thinking man's movie with the same senseless violence action that it explores.

There's no reason not to like it. It's like a drug fuelled Tarantino movie on coke or PCP.

JJ Abrams and his "mystery box" nonsense ruined Star Wars.

His style lends itself well to cliffhangers and the "tune in next time" mentality. Except that he never has any idea of how things will end. When you don't have to provide answers for any of the questions you create, you can't lose. Perhaps if JJ ended up doing all the movies it wouldn't be as bad. But he basically did what sounded good and made him seem like a genius. Yet when Rian Johnson came along he was left to assemble a puzzle that was missing all the corners and center pieces. It's like a story circle: multiple people tell a story one word at a time. Without focus though it all becomes Purple Monkey Dishwasher.

Regardless of how horribly the prequels were received or how panned Lucas was, he was at least telling the same story (even if it was stuff most people didn't care about).

Look at Marvel. Love the movies or hate them, they've all had a unified vision. Thanks to producer, Kevin Feige. There are different sub-genres within the MCU (Cap's spy thrillers, Ant-Man being the fun heist movie, etc.), but ultimately they all fit together.

Yeah I still can't believe they went with JJ for Star Wars, or at least didn't sit down and figure out what they were doing with the new movies before getting started. JJ set a ton of stuff up that Johnson just dismissed in Last Jedi (which I thought was hilarious, especially with how mad ppl are about Snoke) but either way, it's pretty clear those movies were made by different people with different visions for the trilogy instead of one continuing the other with a unified story//theme/message.

I do think Rogue One was amazing though. I don't really care about the new trilogy and will probably see Solo eventually even though I have zero interest in it. But Rogue One I dug.

Not really surprised it's not doing great. The Force Awakens really went over the heads of the hardcore fans, in being the first star wars movie that actually had something to say about personal growth (something a lot of men in our culture refuse to reflect on) rather than just being a black and white heroic journey. And they spurt out a this movie less than a year later.

Then on top of that, all the reports come out that they basically had to film the Solo twice and that the lead, playing an iconic character forever linked to one actor, sucked. This is the only way it could go down.

Same thing happened to Justice League, just all the preceding movies were actually bad.

The thing that bothered me the most about the new Star Wars, which some people have touched on in this thread, is just how cool the EU was and how much great material was thrown out. It may have just been because I was 9 years old at the time, but it was amazing. Even if the new stuff had just kept the basic framework of Luke having built up both a great New Jedi Order and also his family and legacy, and then all of this being challenged by outside threats to the Force itself, it would have been better than what we got.

A major reason why they retconed the EU was in part because Chewbacca died. Honestly I would have liked to have seen Timothy Zahn’s post ROTJ trilogy be adapted but don’t get me started on the Yuuzhan Vong.

For me I would have been fine with them retconning huge parts of the EU as long as they at least treated the big characters like Luke and Han with the dignity that they had in the EU, being largely successful heroes, leaders in a galactic rebellion against the Sith Empire, who had left a lasting legacy, and for the story to be them and the people around them in positions of power facing threats to the new system.

As for the Yuuzhan Vong, I didn't mind them too much (and the whole thing retroactively gave some depth to the Emperor), but also wouldn't care even a little bit if they were totally changed into something else, as long as the main concept was an outside threat to the now reestablished Jedi Order, rather than fighting a literal bootleg copy of the Empire and Darth Vader and being rebels again and failing. It just all feels like the original trilogy meant nothing, and so we are going to do a weird shadow play of it instead and pretend it is better.

They retconned the EU because it was all glorified fanfiction. That's not a knock on its quality either; just an acknowledgement that there's no reason to found your new blockbuster megafranchise on the output of journeymen pulp-writers from the '90s. Either you expect movie-going audiences to have read 40 years of books & comics, you decide to adapt 40 years of books & comics, or you just make something original and accessible. Y'know. Like the first Star Wars movie.

Boba Fett is cool because he wears essentially space sunglasses that hide his face and he hangs out behind darth vader or jabba the hutt looking fresh and not saying anything
every time they try to make him into an actual character it makes the character worse, the backstory went from "hardened mercenary with a shadowy past" to "whiny child of literal dime a dozen australian man" with the prequels, if they actually try to give him his own movie it'll be an unmitigated disaster

Uh right yeah except not at all because the vast majority of boba fans hoping for his movie are the same who gave not a single stray fuck about Han Solo getting a movie and could probably not care less for him as a side character.

Boba Fett is way more interesting, albeit the prequels kinda fucked him a little, there is still plenty of room to show him going forward. Whats fucked is they made the prequels timeline basically 15 years or so before episode 4, which means IF they show a face it’d have to be a young non grittled actor same as the Solo film.

This new Midnight's Edge video very eloquently pointed out something very obvious that I hadn't noticed, and is the reason that Star Wars is on the down trend. The script has flipped. The empire was a symbol of communism, now the movies and the media are promoting marxism and such.

What I could agree on is that people could relate more to fighting a big bad evil empire during the time that the movies originally came out. Then again stuff like that isn't especialy what makes a movie successful.

People have grown up and are just tired of the brand, Star Wars isn't special anymore.

It's a good video. I think they only difference when it comes to ideology between old and new starwars is that old starwars did it much less ham-fistedly.

Also back then Hollywood still knew how to make movies, which they don't now.

i'm not interested in engaging any of your other misinformed wacko shit but I would like to "well, actually" you in saying that Star Wars consistently underperforms in the Chinese market. they want more robot movies. and that leads to a point that i think is far more interesting than what you're currently arguing about:

basically the domestic box office doesn't matter anymore; huge movies make their money abroad, but since star wars hasn't succeeded in that they make up for it by pushing toys and other merchandise. if it's truly going to collapse as a franchise, I want to see how much they're still making off of grown adults buying storm trooper themed bedsheets or people going to the theme park attractions. people can get tired of the movies but that leads to only more pearl clutching around the original trilogy, and people will still buy star wars brand stuff because the iconography of Vader and lightsabers and shit will still persist.

Probably, yeah. They'd probably get tore up on the social medias.

But the popularity of the phrase is superficial pop-feminism being just as tone-deaf as everyone else, and selling T-shirt merch in the process. It's refreshing really, in a depressing sort of way.

But the original intent behind it is that men will destroy the world and that if it is to have a future it must be female. Truly the sentiment of a massive stonking lesbian.

But we can learn from the Nation of Islam, that flipping the power and prejudice on its head is just as fucked up as it was in the first place. In the resistance of prejudice and toxic power, it is very difficult not to take on its worst flaws in the process.

We naturally divide into factions and create movements in the image of our opponents.

Wow, these comments are cancer. Man, I can’t imagine what it’s like to be so fragile.

SOLO wasn’t epic but it was pretty damn sweet. Chewwie had some fantastic scenes. The story played out pretty well, it’s nothing fantastic, just a fun journey to gain some backstory. Some of the plot twists were legitimately dope, some were pretty lame. Feminism bot was a little heavy handed but seeing as the droids in Star Wars have always represented oppressed people (mostly black slaves, possibly gays as well) I think she fits the franchise fine. Donald Glover was definitely the best part of the movie, he had some great scenes. There was like an Eldritch Horror in the movie and I’m cool with that because I love Lovecraft and Star Wars is both scifi and fantasy. Zalbaar from KOTOR cameos, which was quite interesting. But also the battle choreography has significantly improved; instead of people standing around firing lasers wildly, the characters can actually both shoot precisely and use evasive/tactical maneuvers so as to not be a standing target but actually appear to be in a real gunfight. Mentioning realistic gunfights, the trench warfare scene was fucking epic, one of Star Wars’ best scenes so far. Not my favorite Star Wars by a long shot, but it’s a sweet ride.

nah... I went into the cinema just for the sake of wasting time and watched solo because there wasnt anything else i wanted to see. I wasnt expecting anything and i was still disappointed. The nostalgia boner strategy has already run out of steam. Seeing the same tortured droids from episode 4 - 6 was just predictable and boring. Alden Ehrenreich wasn't han solo. period. I couldnt really care about the girl and most of the other characters I basically knew would be dead by the end and wouldnt matter anyway. Lando Calrission/ Donald Glover did have potential and I would have been down to see a whole movie about him, Solo and Chewie robbing aliens in star wars version of the wild west - or something. Instead it was basically a continual series of plot twists/ characters taking their masks off after the initial plot set up.
What I really missed was a well presented and constructed world. An architecture of sorts, something that told me a bit more about the star wars universe. This was just a story about people i didnt care about.

I had a discussion with my pal about the new film. I just stated vaguely that Solo sucks (as well as TFA, TLJ and to a lesser degree, R1). He replied:

>“What was wrong with Solo? Be specific?”

And I'm seeing that same question in this thread, so I'll just copy my reply here for anyone who's still asking that question. I'm not going to use yellow-text. Everything below this is a quote though.

By making Han a good, kind-hearted hero in this film, they undermined his original character arc, in which he started as a dashing selfish rogue and turned into an empathetic general of the rebellion.

We didn't get enough time to invest ourselves in Qira and Han's relationship, so when he decides that he's going to dedicate himself to saving her, it comes across as forced (no pun). This is only made worse by Khaleesi's demeanor when the two finally meet on Dryden's ship. (Let alone the laziness in writing that is the massive coincidence of them meeting there). Her attitude towards him immediately confirms any suspicions we’ve had that maybe he's following his heart penis a bit too blindly, especially given that, I should point out again, he's supposed to have started out as a selfish yet charming rogue.

So the films ends with Han fighting Dryden, but then Qira betrays Dryden, but then she betrays Han, but then- PSYCHE- she betrays Dryden again, but then, she betrays Han one more time anyway. I get the value of subversion in film, but this isn't it. This character writing doesn't establish a motive, and the betrayals don't feel like they have any meaning or purpose other than to surprise us, yet by this point in the film we've already eaten so much subversion that it's hard to be surprised by anything short of Darth Maul Exar Fucking Kun returning, because even Maul wouldn’t be surprising at this point, and so it only makes more confusing an already sloppily written character. What motive could she possibly have to do this ridiculous back-and-fourth quintuple agent stuff? I'd wager it's about female empowerment, a noble aim, but man did they pull it off infinitely better with Darth Traya, the Betrayer, in KotOR2, and Princess Leia in the original trilogy.

Darth Maul was an exciting shoehorn for the fans, myself included, but his story was already tied up in Rebels, so now we're stuck with another plot-armored main character, who’s lightsaber color is transmitted through holographic communication for some reason (Very Cool). Qira's character arc wasn't in the film, and it only hurt an already hard-to-believe relationship between her and Han. The transition she makes from the time we first see her as a slave, to the time when she's working for Dryden is so substantial that she may as well be two different characters, and yet we don't see any of that transition in the film. Luke in TLJ falls into a similar pit, with his massive character change occurring off-screen, that turns him into a bitter selfish space-alien-breastfeeding hermit that lives with porgs. Maybe we could have bought into it, if only we had saw his fall. Like William Shakesman once said, "Show, don't tell."

I don't assume you've ever had to run from the police or government, but if you did have to, would you go to a military recruitment office and ask for a job? That seems like a counter-intuitive thing to do if you're wanted by that military's government, no? The whole film is plagued with these gaps in logic, as well as numerous blows to the established canon (nothing as bad as General Poppins unconsciously flying through space, but still).

Boy, this is already turning into a massive reply. I tried to be concise, and I can keep going if you're interested, or you can address some of my criticisms and we can pick them apart a bit. It's just that there really are so many things about it that it's hard to capture them all here, or even dive into them thoroughly. I suppose I'll just keep on trucking.

Did we really need (at best) awkward and (at worst) laughable backstories for things like how Han got his name (a recruiter came up with it on the fly), or how he got his blaster (some guy gave it to him), or why he calls Chewbacca "Chewie," (Chewbacca is too long), or how Lando got his 'Jabba's Palace Guard Disguise' (I don't even..)? I mean, why would Lando even use a disguise that looks like Jabba's Palace Guards anywhere but at Jabba's Palace? He held onto that random helmet for the last decade, just in case some day he would need to break into Jabba's Palace? Where did he even get it?

At every turn, obsessive long-term fans are bluntly met with the reality that Mr. Howard, while an excellent director (Disclaimer: I don’t actually know any of his other films- I’m just being nice), did not take sufficient time to explore the Star Wars canon before writing the film (probably since he was reshooting somebody else's first attempt at the film in three weeks), and instead used cheap references and shallow backstories to connect his film to the Star Wars universe. But even more important than consistency within the franchise is the fact that the characters weren't compelling and the story felt lazy, and was paced poorly, leading to a lot of people being really bored. While TFA was a blatant rip of ANH and general Star Wars tropes (not unlike a certain star trek film or two), and maybe we only all enjoyed it initially because of how excited we were for a new SW film, it still was somewhat engaging (a little bit). And The Last Rian Johnson Movie at least had vast comedic value for our inner pessimist. And Rogue 1 (and RotS too for that other guy) weren't bad films, not awful anyway.

And I didn't even get into Lando being confirmed by Donald Glover to be a technosexual. I just don't have enough beer for this kind of- I mean look, this doesn't benefit the film in any way- it's one of the most off-putting retcons in star wars since midichlorians. And yet this representation of pansexuality doesn't even help those who exist outside of a gender-binary system, which we can only assume was the whole point, since social messaging in star wars is commonplace now. In fact, it makes humor out of pansexuals by defining them as robot fetishists, so even in shilling for positive social progress the film fails.

Star Wars isn't selling well in the toys department.

From what I've heard, a lot of stores have put caps on how much merch they will buy, because a lot of it is collecting dust on the shelves. It's just not like it was during the run of the prequel movies when those things sold like mad. I imagine there is a lot of freaking out behind the scenes, and I wouldn't be surprised if Cathleen Kennedy gets canned, even if it's not totally her fault, there has been a lot of crap on her watch.

I would happy knock you out cold repeatedly until you eventually got up with a changed opinion. Rogue One is the most hilariously overrated basic tier typical cinema I ever in my life had the displeasure of viewing. I legitimately almost fell asleep in the theater. Nothing redeemable in said film. Basic toe-the-line Hollywood movie, from start to finish, and with utterly predictable characters who evolked not a single emotion in me or anybody in the theater OR everybody I know who saw it. Askde from all that, it had no scrolling yellow text intro, at all. People call it one of the best in all of StarWars why, because it got a shiny Hollywood funded production level and looked real nice and sharp? That movie fucking blows, i will never watch it again even on Netflix, and luckily nobody has ever told me in person that it was one of the greatest because I would probably get banned from whatever public place I hear such a terrible opinion in, due to my reaction being strictly unpleasant in order to concentrate all of the pain from even trying to understand such a terrible opinion and make SOME sense in this universe because we clearly have NONE.

>Man star wars is the marvel movies of sci fi.
Except the MCU movies by and large are good, well planned out, enjoyable movies. I never would have guessed that I would love a fucking Thor movie, but Ragnarok was great. All of the current cast MCU movies are great to be honest.

I think the biggest issue with the Star Wars stuff we are getting now is that Disney is just to pumped to have this cash cow that they aren't investing any time into the planning stage of things. Instead they pick a shitty script out of a hat and throw a dart at a board to pick a director and run with it. If they had stopped, taken a year or two to plan out the story lines, picked writers that actually care about the setting, and stick to the stories that are worth telling (a fucking Boba Fett movie? seriously?) then they wouldn't be seeing the tanking Solo numbers and hearing about Star Wars burnout from fans and audiences.

Also here's George Lucas on his own plans for Star Wars 7, 8 & 9.

It's pretty amazing that this series still has so much money put into it all because it produced 3 good movies and sold a lot of toys. I really hope Disney takes a big loss on it tbh. They're stupid for thinking that because Star Wars sold tons of toys 15 years ago that they have the talent or know-how to milk this series eternally and somehow produce quality content that will sell.

Also funny that George Lucas is such a retard yet he's a billionaire. There are so many good artists that didn't get money because he did.

They don't need talent or know-how to milk it. They just need to throw lots of money into a huge ad-campaign. The mere exposure effect is pretty much Disney's main strategy. I wouldn't be surprised if they actually spent more money on ads than on content creation.

I would of honestly preferred George Lucas to just finish the damn series and be like "look there, i had my magnum opus in the 70's-80's, so what? i made the series how i envisioned it and if the fans didnt like it then fuck the fans"

Because i actually really like his idea for 7,8 and 9. i would have much preferred to see that over whats coming out as of recent.

I think I heard that for Solo they spent something like $100 million on ads, I imagine it's a lot more for their main trilogy movies though. But yeah, when they're doing advertisment on Denny's menus, I think it's pretty clear that you're right lmao.

A-fucking-men to that.
Instead we are looking at a franchise that will surely give us a Jar Jar Binks centered film in the near future....

his idea sounds both batshit and stupid. i'm still very glad he was ousted from the franchise, despite being disappointed with the disney product. there's a timeline out there where there were good star wars movies outside the original trilogy, but in it both george lucas and kathleen kennedy died in 1993.

seriously i know the EU mostly sucks but why didn't they just make a movie out of the Thrawn books

Put off seeing this due to people shitting on it. Wasn't gonna bother at all but went on impulse a couple days ago.

Here's my issue with the movie, which tbh I liked overall.

So Han blackmails his way into Woody Harrelson's crew, and on the first mission they undertake, Harrelson (who is not at all sold on Han) loses his wife, his alien pilot friend, the score, and now has a space don mad af at him.

When all this goes down, he looks over and sees Han's smug face atop that smug cowboy pose they told the actor to do all movie, and understandably decks him. Here, Han got lucky, because he coulda just shot him and nobody would've blamed him.

That said, he fucking APOLOGIZES to Han like five minutes later, and immediately starts planning the next heist with him. Why in the fuck would he have a damn thing to do with this guy ever again?

Maybe because he'd lost his whole crew and that wasn't actually Han's fault. He'd have to start from scratch if he told Han and Chewie to fuck off, which he didn't even have a reason to do (remember it was framed as being his own fault for not listening to his wife). Han dropped the cargo, but saved them by doing so--it was a snap decision and not something he could be blamed for. And not that it matters, but we find out later it was objectively the right call since the proto-rebels didn't necessarily want to steal it, they just needed to keep it out of gangster hands.
And I think the movie had established that the dude had a sort-of soft spot for Han. He was acting like a mentor, gave him his gun, etc.

The only thing I didn't really like was the wife character being basically unnecessary. The robot was a shitlord, but that was clearly intentional and her brutal death was satisfying as a result. And I'm starting to get sick of Donald Glover being pushed so hard but that's not the movie's fault.

>implying GL had much to do with the originals.
Many other more talented people made those movies what they are. He was just a figurehead.
He wanted some crazy shit like Han to be a reptile iirc... anyway it's all in this video. They break down the modern trilogy with a bunch of behind the scenes stuff on Lucas.

I'm not a fan of star wars, and the prequels SUCK. But circlejerk has a point that an ewan mcgregor obiwan movie would be dope. As much as the prequels sucked, his chracter is always fun to watch. Something about him. And he's the right age to play obiwan between the prequels and original.

Haven't even seen the last couple star wards, but I'd totally watch the kenobi movie. Maybe circlejerk just brainwashed me.

An Obi Wan movie might be good, but I like the idea of him just sitting in that hut on Tatooine for 20 years, whittling with his lightsaber and talking to himself, occasionally chuckling about how clever the cover name "Old Ben Kenobi" is.
